Sometimes life gets in the way. We may find ourselves in a situation we didn’t plan for or something new and exciting happens that we need to update our health insurance coverage.

Here are some circumstances that may qualify you for a Special Enrollment Period:

  • Losing job-based coverage
  • Losing individual health coverage for a plan or policy you bought yourself
  • Losing eligibility for Medicaid or CHIP
  • Losing eligibility for Medicare
  • Losing coverage through a family member
  • An employer offers to help with the cost of coverage
  • You or anyone in your household newly gained access to an individual coverage HRA or a Qualified Small Employer Health Reimbursement Arrangement (QSEHRA)
  • You became a U.S. citizen
  • Left incarceration
  • Starting or ending service as an AmeriCorps State and National, VISTA, or NCCC member
  • You got married
  • Had a baby, adopted a child, or placed a child for foster care
  • Got divorced or legally separated
  • If someone on your plan dies
  • Changes in residence
  • Loss of employer health insurance

There are many reasons you may qualify for special enrollment. Many of these changes need to happen 60 days before or after the qualifying event. If you’re unsure how to handle such events, call DFW Direct Insurance, 817-499-5557. We’re happy to guide the way.
